Feature and Follow Friday

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

Thank you for stopping by my blog! I will follow back, just leave your link in the comment box! Have an awesometastic weekend! Make sure to check out my giveaway page for lots of awesome giveaways!

Q: Books are turned into movies all the time! Turn it around. What movie would make a great book?

That's a hard one for me, because I mostly watch comedies. I think it would be hard to read a "Tommy Boy" or "The Hangover." Sometimes you just need that visual.

And all of my favourite movies from a book or comics. The Notebook, P.S. I Love You, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, and Inception. As all of you know Hunger Games, X-Men, and the Avengers were in print before going to film. So I'm going to settle with The Gladiator (which I hope isn't a book). I would like to know what Maximus was thinking and feeling during some of the more touching scenes, like the ending.

What movie would you like turned into a book? Leave your link in the box and I will return the comment love!

Thanks for stopping by my FF post
earlier. Gladiator could be good, and I have no idea either if it's been a book already.

Enjoy your weekend.

Livia @ Butterfly-o-Meter Books said...

The Gladiator, yes! That would be an awesome read, I agree. And sometimes a story fits better with a movie format, I agree on that as well.

Following your blog (because 'following you' sounds sort of stalkerish, lol).
Thanks for stopping, have a great weekend!

I had to delete that comment, sorry! I had two typos and that drives me nuts!

Anyway - I'd like to read gladiator too, but maybe for a different reason. I'd like to see how they put the fight scenes together. :)

Nice! I'm surprised this wasn't a book. Since so many movies do get movie adaptation books!

Hi Ashley! Thanks for stopping by The Book Asylum. I never even considered Gladiator! What a great movie... I could totally see myself falling into a book version! I'm an old follower via GFC. Happy Friday!

Unknown said...

Oh that's a good choice! I would definitely read that book. Thanks for stopping by my FF this week. Old follower.

Amanda said...

Definitely agree! Gladiator is a great movie but it being a book would make the characters a little more personal.


Daphne said...

Great answer! I had a hard time with this question to because I'm so used to watching movies that are based off of books. Thanks for visiting my blog! Old follower.

Jennifer @ BookShelfery said...

OMG Inception would make an awesome book! Total mindF**** pardon the language.
Thanks for stopping by!

Jennifer @ Bad Bird Reads said...

Great choice. I would probably enjoy it more as a book because I do not like Russel Crow.

Thanks for stopping by.

Sarah said...

Old follower, I've never seen this movie but I've heard it's really good, although the historical aspect would be interesting to read about, thanks for stopping by

I've watched the Gladiator so many times! It's a really touching movie!
By the way, I live in Rome so I've heard so many stories about Gladiators and death in the Colosseum :')

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

I'd love to read Gladiator! I picked Inception - although I'm not sure how it'd translate. I'm a new follower and I can't wait to read through all your reviews. We read a lot of the same books. Maybe you can stop by my blog sometime. =)

Christina said...

Good one. I actually didn't like the movie that much because of some of the weird visuals, so I think I would actually like it a lot more as a book. Thanks for stopping by!

Micheline said...

I SO agree with your comment about wanting to know what Maximus was thinking (especially at the end)! I think that was a big reason why it was my first choice too...well that and I'd just want more of the story period ♥ Thanks for sharing & for stopping by my FFF earlier. New follower via GFC!

Just about all my favorite movies are already based off of a book of some sort as well, so I understand. There are just so many movies based on books nowadays. :)

You're right. Gladiator would have made an excellent book because it would be nice to know a bit of the backstory and details about what he was thinking! :) Thanks for stopping by my FF. New follower on GFC.
